We report detailed nanocalorimetric measurements on the newly discovered magnetic superconductor RbEuFe4As4. We investigated the superconducting transition at Tc=37K and extracted the phase boundary for in and out of plane magnetic fields obtaining an anisotropy ratio of 1.8. Large superconducting fluctuations are observed as well as a vortex lattice melting transition identified as a step of 4-5% of the zero field jump in specific heat. The melting line is considerably below the upper-critical-field line which is in quantitative agreement with theoretical predictions. In small fields near the magnetic transition Tm = 14.9K, we resolved a cusp-like behavior of the specific heat curve that shifts to lower temperatures for fields along the c-axis and a broad shoulder that shifts to higher temperatures for in-plane fields. We can reproduce our measured calorimetry data quantitatively by Monte-Carlo simulations of an anisotropic easy-plane 2D Heisenberg model that suggests that the cusp in specific heat is due to a BKT transition and the high temperature hump at higher fields marks a crossover from a paramagnetically disordered to an ordered state.
